Understanding Image Rights (The Basics)
Copyright law in most of the world gives the creator of an image the exclusive rights to make copies, display an image publicly and/or use it in another piece of work. If someone else, like a website owner, wants to use an image, they need to get permission from the creator and possibly pay for a license to do so.
Does this mean that for every image you want to use, you must track down its creator, ask for permission and even pay them to use it? No, thankfully! It will depend on the kind of license attached to the image. The creator of an image can decide to release the image with a license that allows specific uses, for example. So long as you stick within the rules of the license, you’re golden.
Using an image in a way that does not conform with its license is considered copyright infringement. If you are lucky you may only get asked to stop using the image, but in the worst case scenario you could be sued. With that in mind, make sure you understand the terms of the licenses attached to images you want to use!
Most image licenses look at the following conditions on the use of an image:
Type of use: Commercial or non-commercial use, with the first being any use of an image to sell or promote a product, service, or idea.
Attribution: Credit may need to be given to the original creator of the image and required format (e.g. a link) specified.
Modification: The image may have to be used unchanged, or you may allowed to modify it and create new images or materials from it.
Number of uses: Some licenses may restrict the number of times an image can be used.
